Octopus Tag

When I saw this stamp I new I had to have it! As soon the stamps arrived I got to play (I can't really call stamping work, now can I?) To recreate this project you will need:
Other Supplies: Tag, black & Cream cardstock, Black Archival Ink, Watercolor Mists, Washi Tape, Fibers
Start by masking off the center sprocket in the wings from the Sin City Stamps Classic Spark Rubber Stamp Set  with Washi Tape
Stamp onto tag with Archival ink. (Note: gently ink your stamp so the the washi tape doesnt pick up the image underneath.)  
Stamp Octopus lady from the Sin City Stamps Octopus Time! Steampunk Art Rubber Stamp Set  leaving wings in the background. 
Stamp Grunge Circles along edges of tag with the Sin City Stamps Background Grunge Art Rubber Stamp Set
Mist tag with Yellow, Orange, then Purple water color mists. Let dry. 
 While tag is drying stamping sentiment onto cream cardstock. Cut into banner and mist to coordinate with tag. Let dry.
Mat tag onto Black cardstock and add fibers.
Add sentiment to finish tag! I hope this project inspires you to get stamping!

Hope you enjoy this week's sketch and play along at Sketches in Thyme.

First it all started when I found this sled I found at the local Goodwill Store. 

Super cute but a little "retro"!  Well I decided to fix it up a bit and here is how I did it!

I cover the sled with Dare 2B Artzy Winter Plaid papers and Mod Podge. 

While that was drying I Stamped my greeting onto a tag with D2BA's Tis the Season Stamp set and spritzed my tag with Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. 

Once everything was dry I added a couple of greenery sprigs and the tag and a ribbon to finsh my project!
